MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many residences have been built for assistant teachers in Ireland under the Teachers' Residences Act, 1875, and are the Commissioners of National Education prepared to receive applications on behalf of assistant teachers for such residences; how many national schools in Ireland have an average attendance of fifty pupils or over, and of the principal teachers in these schools how many received between £12 10s. and £15 as residential capitation grant, and how many received over £15; and, of the assistant teachers in these same schools, how many received less than £3 of this grant or received no capitation payment.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Commissioners of National Education inform me that it will not be possible to furnish the particulars asked for before the close of the present session. I will communicate the information to the hon. Member when I receive it.
